Fire District 3 and the Oregon Department of Forestry responded to the 15000 block of Jones Road.
The grass fire burned about an acre in size on private property. ODF said the fire burned close to the home but was put out before any property was damaged.
“I’d like to remind people that it is extreme fire danger still,” Taylor Wilkerson, Wildland Supervisor with ODF, said. “We still have low relative humidity and hot temperatures forecasted throughout this week so just making sure everybody minds the rules and abides by them.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
